How To Stop A Single 'Stuck Thread' Causing All Requests To A Servlet To Be Rejected With 503 Responses

(Doc ID 1073696.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 10.3 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A web application contains multiple servlets; each one has a different WLS dispatch policy and hence WLS work manager. Each work manager has a max threads constraint. If a single thread triggers the 'stuck thread' warning the servlet stops servicing requests, and instead returns HTTP 503 responses.

What options are available to alter this behavior?
